This work and its counterpart started out as a little sketch in my bullet journal. I had the idea of creating two “identical” pictures. One showing empty space in the shape of a neuron and the other being its mirror image that is filled with an actual cell. Here’s the birth certificate of this idea. Don’t worry if you cannot read my chicken scratch. 🙂
The schematic on the left (with red) resulted in creation of “The Void” which respresents the emptiness that we feel after a tragic experience. You can read more about it here.
On the right, “The Mind” serves as its mirror image. It was created by taking the outline of the empty space in the center of “The Void” and replacing it with green color, which lends itself to more positive emotions that come after the void has been filled. It can be thought of as the stage beyond acceptance. Moreover, it also reaches its highest point where the void was the deepest. Thereby, it not only replenishes, but even surpasses that which was lost before.
